Parent Support

Our UK wide network of Parent Contacts are trained to:

  • Support others who are going through what you have experienced
  • Be a support to their local Cleft Team
  • Understand the potential emotional responses of different family members
  • Refer appropriately to others, e.g. Cleft Teams
  • Provide information about CLAPA's services

 All of our Parent Contacts have undergone a two day training course run by CLAPA and any conversations with them will be confidential.
